Not been here for a while. Decided to go for their `steak night` ( 2 x 8 oz rump steak, tomato, onion rings, chips, salad. 2 for £20 inc a beer or wine ). Beer and wine OK, steak utterly tasteless! Won`t be back.

I had the roast chicken with chips and salad, although the chicken was tender it was dry as there was no sauce or gravy, my friend also had the same and we both agreed it was lacking! Maybe we chose the wrong meal?
